Surfunction opens a new location in Dresden, Germany
Surfunction Tec GmbH has now been spun off as a subsidiary of the Technical University of Dresden. The focus will be on the production of the next generation of optics and process development.
The researchers and co-founders of Surfunction, Prof. Dr. Frank Mücklich and Prof. Dr. Andrés Lasagni are award-winning inventors of the Direct Laser Interference Patterning (DLIP) technology platform. Saarland University and the Technical University of Dresden have been working together very successfully for many years. This special cooperation paved the way for the growth of Surfunction at the new location in Dresden.
“With our subsidiary Surfunction Tec in Dresden, we particularly want to advance our technological expertise and the next xDLIP generation (extended Direct Laser Interference Patterning – Gen II). This generation of optics, which is now available, represents a breakthrough in optical functionality and compactness and will enable high-performance applications, for example in the fields of safety technology and hygiene. In the future, production is to take place at our new location in Dresden according to industrial standards,” says Dr. Dominik Britz, Managing Director Surfunction GmbH.
